My Story

I started working at Morgan Stanley in the IT department and worked my way onto the Enterprise Software equity research team under Chuck Phillips, one of the greatest analysts bar none. Over time, I ended up working for a competitor and two hedge funds before trying more entrepreneurial ventures. I am passionate about helping individuals find freedom in financial independence. For me, investing is a conduit to freedom, that's more valuable than money.
